The game is pretty fun, the graphics are really good and the music is fine.

An idea i had is storing the end points of the animations to play them backwards in each point in time (maybe you should also store the velocity to add it to the player when you stop rewinding them). Also, You should try adding more animations. Finally, i think that the stuck and return to menu font didnt fit well with the graphics, try using the 8bits font from earlier.

overall, Nice work. Well Done :D

Thank you FedCap!

Yeah I kinda always want to do everything myself ..im really not deep into music tho, I just threw some tunes together in bosca ceoil ^^

..that basically aplies to everything, I just want to learn as much as possible :)

More animations ..especially some trick licke animations when jumping were planned, but safly I did not have enough time to do any

I'm happy to hear that you had fun and thanks for your advice I will implement it to future versions

I liked it. It's a bit short, I would like to see more areas.

The rewinding mechanic is good, but I found that if you rewinded to a point where you were on top of a red rail, then you could accelerate as if you were on the floor (which I don't think was intended). The controls are a bit weird, but not unfair, so I won't complain.

Overall, good job! Well done.

Thanks for your awesome feedback JMS! :D

You are right it is pretty short ..and has some bugs of course ^^

I think I'd like to continue to fo some work on this game, if you are interested leave me a follow over on Instagram I will announce stuff there

The game could have been better if you reduced the capsules' hitbox: it's often too hard to avoid them. I found a bug too, I jumped from a red bar where you can ride the skate, but I went straight in the sky and never went down, lol. That's pretty normal though, you only had a week, but the game has potential and the idea is not bad. Hope you'll update it after this jam

Bringing jetpacks is illegal! xD no just kidding I have no idea what happend there ..thanks for your review tho, i'll have a look at what could've went wrong ^^

Pretty fun game but a bit hard to control especially the jump but, the skateboarding cat compensated for that!

Developer

Hey OmletCheese, thanks for your awesome feedback!

Jeah the only thing I implemented is that the jump height depends on how long you press the space bar ^^

10/10, it has a cat.

My only suggestion would be that it could be a bit easier, as its fairly hard to get past those time-reversing capsules.  Other than that, its pretty good, and I am excited for your video!

Thank you TheMagicat for that awesome feedback :D

To be honest I intentionally made it a little harder since the Level is quite short ^° -Im sorry tho if i've overdone it a little

Looking forward to playing your submission too! You had a great idea from what I can tell from your description :)

I have to wait till the end of the jam tho, im on a trip through Finnland :)
